Abstract

The progress in research and development (R&D) on energy absorbers for muon cooling carried out by a collaboration of university and laboratory groups was described. A stored-muon-beam neutrino factory required transverse ionization cooling of the muon beam. It was proposed to use liquid hydrogen (LH2) as the energy-absorbing medium to minimize the effects of Coulomb scattering of the muons as they pass through the energy-absorbing medium.
